Social Media Beat (8/4-1) – A Look At The Scene From Salzburg And Pesaro

By Francisco Salazar

It’s festival season and many artists are performing in high profile concerts and productions while other are simply enjoying vacation time. This week on social media we’ll focus on Salzburg and Pesaro.


While Michele Mariotti is working hard on “I Due Foscari,” his wife Olga Peretyatko is enjoying vacation time after a fabulous season. She visited rehearsals of “Foscari” and even went to the second performance of “Aida.”

Plácido Domingo was spotted in the audience seeing the opening night of “Aida.” The tenor then shared a picture with soprano Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov before the evening celebration.

Brandon Jovanovich, who is also at the Salzburg Festival performing in “Lady Macbeth of Mtsenk,” shared a picture of the scene from outside the Salzburg theater before “Aida” ended.
